Trans-Phos, Inc. was started in May of 1973, by Sam Whitney, as a truck transporter of phosphate rock for the mining industry in Polk and surrounding counties, which at the time was only being transported by rail. From the very beginning, Trans-Phos, Inc. is a family-owned and operated trucking company, not only serving the phosphate industry but also the site construction industry in West Central Florida. Today, the company is led by second and third-generation Whitneys. Bill Whitney serves as CEO, and his son Neil Whitney, as President works diligently leading the Construction and Phosphate division. Neil said, “I am grateful to work alongside my dad to continue working in the trucking industry and build on the legacy my grandfather started 50 years ago.”
Trans-Phos recently celebrated a significant milestone with a grand celebration of its 50th anniversary on May 13. The event took place amidst the picturesque surroundings of Bonnet Springs Park, in Lakeland. With a warm and inviting atmosphere, the festivities brought together a diverse group of 300 guests, including Trans-Phos employees, esteemed customers, and valued vendors.
Guests enjoyed lunch and festivities included activities for children as well as multiple raffles.
